Spotted: Chris Benz (and others!) on the small screen

Chris Benz, AVENUEinsider’s fave pink-haired designer who we aptly dubbed the “Prince of Prep,” made his debut on Gossip Girl last night. We would have liked to see Benz do a little bit more than just saunter down the runway as an escort–but hey, we’ll take it. Though it’s his first time on set, Benz’s designs, however, have been known to show up on the characters and most of the cast have been seen at his Fashion Week shows…

Along with Benz, we also spotted Jamie Johnson and Simon Doonan (both with speaking roles!). A few weeks ago it was veteran GG guest star Jay McInerney (as Jeremiah Harris, a McInerney-like author).

No matter how many shows, movies or videos are taped in Manhattan, we’ll always appreciate Gossip Girl for its New York authenticity and its use of true New York personalities.

We wonder who’s next?
